    Talking HOWTO: Install BitPim

    For those who don't know what Bitpim is, check here!

    All right let's get started installing Bitpim for now.


    We will need to convert a RPM package to DEB package, so do this.
    sudo apt-get install alien

    Now download BitPim from the original website, yes the RPM version.
    And convert the RPM to DEB, by entering the following:
    sudo alien -d bitpim*.rpm

    It will take a few seconds, to convert and it will notify when it finishes.

    Now let's install it:
    sudo dpkg -i bitpim*.deb

    Once installed run it by entering bitpim on the console.

    ERRORS: -> if you receive this kind of error, do the following:
    sudo apt-get install libstdc++5 -> if you receive this kind of error, do the following:
    cd /usr/lib
    sudo ln -s
